How God Poured Me

I caught a passing glimpse of myself
passing the mirror on the way out of the
and realized
this wasn’t me
I marveled for the space of a breath
how God poured me
into this strange
½ black ½ Germanic body
with a bald brown head
and brow like a shelf of granite
over uncertain eyes.
I realized for a profound moment
that this face I see
is no more me
than the car I get into
in the morning.
